This awesome book is math made simple for grades 5-7. It is also great for adults who need basic math understanding. This booked is authored by Dr. Professor Steven A White, a professor from the college of Southern Nevada, who has been acknowledged as Outstanding Professor, 3 years in a row from the college.

Sample content of what you can find within the pages of the book:

**Here’s a cute way to explain Division!**

**EXAMPLE:** 379 d/b (Divided By) 9

**D**oes (Division)

** EXAMPLE:** 37 d/b 9 = 4

**M**acDonalds (Multiplication)

**EXAMPLE:** 4 x 9 = 36

**S**ell (Subtraction)

**EXAMPLE:** 37 – 36 = 1

**C**heese (Compare with the Divisor to make sure it’s OK)

**EXAMPLE:** 1 is less than 9, so go on

**B**urgers (Bring down the next #)

** EXAMPLE:** 1 is there; bring down the 9 makes 19.

Repeat MSC & B

**EXAMPLE:** 19 d/b 9 = 2. Put the 2 up by the 4, multiply 2 x 9, put

18 under the 19. Subtract, and the number left over is 1.

**R**are? (Remainder: can be expressed as R_, a fraction, or a decimal).

**EXAMPLE:** 42 r. 1, 42 1/9, or 42.111 (Can round it to 42.1 or 42.11)

******************************************************************

I’ve also used this combination (and called it the **Division Family**):

**D**ad (Division)

**M**om (Multiplication)

**S**ister (Subtract)

**B**rother (Bring down)

**R**over (Remainder).

That’s cute, too, and gives the basic steps. I think the first example would be

more memorable, especially for Primary and Middle Graders.
